- ... Blue light emitting diodes (LEDs) have emerged as an intervention against Salmonella, which colonizes and grows on fresh-cut fruits. This study evaluated their efficacy on fresh-cut pineapples. Pineapple slices were surface-inoculated with a Salmonella cocktail and illuminated with 460 nm LEDs at different irradiances (92, 147.7 and 254.7 mW/cm2) and temperatures (7, 16 and 25 °C). The resulting d ...
